April Showers And More Besides.

April Showers and more besides Part One.

The Woodhouse Crews are already onsite installing our hire equipment for our clients’ early 2016 outdoor shows and events. While happy to see your familiar Woodhouse foreman back on your site, you might ask yourself, what has he been doing since you last saw him? Well there’s plenty for our foremen to do to ensure the consistent quality of the Woodhouse hire equipment for your 2016 shows and events.

When the deep winter months’ crept upon us, these skilled foremen were back in our workshops at Cotgrave Nottinghamshire working hard, sorting, cleaning, repairing and manufacturing new hire products.

For our temporary stabling the procedure is as follows:

As the leading UK supplier of temporary stables, we carry huge hire stocks of hdpe Quickstable and traditional timber stables. This annual MOT entails sorting through the sheer volume of doors, sides and rear walls, some 6335 sections for the timber hire stock alone. First, we inspect the sections for damages such as cracked boards, splinters and exposed nails and set aside these damaged sections. Then these are taken into the workshop and repaired, if any section is unrepairable, the recyclable components are recovered and the remainder is scrapped for woodchip and a new stable section is added to our new build requirement. Likewise we subject the 3250 hdpe Quickstable sections to the same inspection routine and level of scrutiny but the damage is on a different scale and severity.

How is the damage sustained: firstly it’s due to our temporary resident horses whose kick is 40 times more powerful than a humans and, secondarily due to the repetitive forklifting and installation of the temporary stables at multiple venues across the show and event season. Hence this annual MOT is essential in ensuring the temporary stables are safe and fit for purpose for the following show and event season.

  • Everything was great as usual, the staff were excellent when they came to put up and take down the stables. We will be booking again in the near future for 2015.

  • The service from Woodhouse was first class, the white tenting was stunning, the stand extras did help. Your team were great, especially Jack, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

  • On behalf of the Organising Committee, I’d like to thank you for the great job Woodhouse has done for the FEI Alltech WEG 2014 in Normandy.

    I really appreciated the commitment of your teams that have shown high professionalism in the way they’ve managed the stabling facilities. I hope that we’ll have the opportunity to work together again soon.
